About the Book
The capacity of farms to adapt to and recover from extreme events such as hurricanes and severe drought has assumed urgent importance in an era of climate change. This booklet serves as a methodological toolkit aimed at aiding farmers and technicians to build farming systems that are more resilient to climate variability. It identifies the agroecological principles and practices which enhance resiliency, underlining the need, among others, for crop and genetic diversity at the farm and landscape levels. On this basis, the authors go on to suggest indicators to evaluate the level of vulnerability of farms and, accordingly, enable farmers to improve their response capacity in the face of growing climatic unpredictability.
